5 Minute Reflection

In Section 4.5 of Naming what We Know, Peggy O'Neil points out that "it is essential for writers to learn to assess texts written by others as well as their own work--both the processes that used to create the texts and products that result" (67).

Step 1 -- Analyzing Your Writing Process for the Source Review

  • Think for a moment about the process you used to create your source review. What steps did you take to create your Source Review? Please list and number them in order. Basically, provide a recipe for how you created this source review.
  • Once you have completed your recipe for the process you used, work with a partner, and share your reflections. This should give you some insight on a different approach. What did you notice about your partner's process. Write this down in your reflection.

Step 2 -- Analyzing Your Products

Read over your Source Review and evaluate it. Does it meet the assignment criteria?
